The Genesis Trading Academy

The Most Comprehensive Proprietary Trading Program Available.

How it works.

1 Part one of the process is to join our Online Training Program. It is a one-month guided program that covers the simple definitions to the advanced concepts. It also involves trader assessment by way of simulated trading and research projects. The program is free to everyone.


2Those that do well and meet our criteria online are invited to join our in-house program. Here we look at advanced trading concepts such as specific spread trades and trades that we have seen work well with our seasoned traders. Again, there is no charge for this.


3 Full Trader Funding. Do well in our training program and you will be offered a contract to join us as a fully funded trader. We fund 100% of your trading account and cover any losses. You’ll sit in our dealing room alongside other traders. Game on!


This page is all about the ‘Part One’:

The Online Program

This new program starts with the basics and assumes you have never traded futures before. We move on to strategy, analysis styles and trading styles. We use the simulator extensively to learn new things. You are not left alone here. The program is a guided one where you have a real person to speak with and request feedback.


It sure is, but anything easy is not going to give you much reward. The online program requires you to study, research and trade on a simulator. It’s a few hours per day minimum, but the more time you put in, the better.
Well we hope you find it fun. Trading for a living is tough, but it can also be very rewarding. The markets are always changing and presenting new opportunities. We think that is fun.
Anyone can apply, but things we look for in applicants are little or no trading experience, some financial education (e.g. a commerce degree), entrepreneurial flair, an active lifestyle and a few other things. We have no secret criteria as such.
Nothing. We do not charge for our program. Our goal is to hire you as a trader.
You can apply again. Before you do however, speak to us about how to improve your trading.
